S. Himmelstein and Company

S. Himmelstein and Company has been designing and manufacturing the world’s best torque measurement transducers, torque sensors, and instrumentation since 1960. Our products offer significant advantages over competitive models, enhancing their overall performance under real world conditions, not just in the calibration stand.

Highest Available Mechanical Overloads
Select from 200%, 400%, 500% and 1,000% overload models. The flexibility to select torque sensor mechanical overload allows optimal sizing of the sensor to suit the application, even in the presence of peak torques that exceed the average running torque.

High Electrical Overrange
All Himmelstein Torque Transducers and Instruments with high level dc analog output voltages, have significant electrical overrange (130% to 150% in most cases.). This means that the output signal does not clip at full scale. All rotating mechanical systems have oscillatory signals. When operating at or near full scale, insufficient overrange on the output signal will cause clipping of the peak values and result in incorrect display of the average torque. Himmelstein Torque Transducers will provide accurate measurement, even beyond full scale.

Best Dynamic Measurements
Our Bearingless Torque Flanges are the best choice for dynamic measurement and control. That's because the world’s highest torsional stiffness yields wider installed bandwidth and faster installed response than any competitive device. They also feature industries highest overrange and greatest isolation from clamping and other extraneous loads. Those features reduce errors from clipped torque peaks and parasitic loads.

World Class Temperature Performance
Superior temperature compensation results in sensor temperature performance that greatly reduces errors caused by drive heating and thermal gradients. This level of temperature performance allows us to offer Dual Range Torque Transducers with high accuracy.

Broadest Available Range of ISO17025 Torque Calibration Services
Available calibration ranges from 10 ozf-in to 4,000,000 lbf-in (0.07 Nm to 452,000 Nm). Accreditation is through NVLAP, an arm of the United States NIST, lab code 200487-0. Nine calibration stands are available to provide optimal measurement uncertainty for the range of transducer being calibrated. Services are offered for torque transducers manufactured by Himmelstein as well as those of other manufacturers. ISO 17025 accredited NIST traceable calibration certificates are provided with each calibration.
